NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Metro Nashville Police Canine Officer has been decommissioned and placed on administrative leave following his arrest Tuesday night in Williamson County.

Nolensville Police charged Dale Becraft with aggravated assault, domestic assault and prevention of a 911 call.

Officers were called to Becraft's home at 8:45 p.m. Tuesday. His teenage son told officers that his father choked him during an argument. Becraft's wife told police he pushed her down the stairs, and also took the family's cell phones when she tried to call 911.

He then left the residence, but later went to the Nolensville Police Department and was booked into the Williamson County jail. His bond was set at $8,000.

Metro Police's Office of Professional Accountability has begun an administrative investigation of Becraft's alleged actions.

The 41-year-old is a 12-year veteran with Metro Nashville Police Department.
